  • If you are a resident outside of the European Economic Area or Switzerland, please contact the admissions office by 12th November if you do not think you will be able to attend the interviews in person.

Submission of Written Work

Some courses require you to submit written work along with your application. If you are unsure if your course requires this please follow this link: http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/applying-to-oxford/guide/written-work. Remember to check your full course page for their requirements as this differs across courses.

If you are required to send in written work, the deadline for submission is 10th November 2018 – this is the date by which it is to arrive. Please ensure that you are aware of the exact written work requirements by visiting www.ox.ac.uk/writwork.

To submit your written work please email academic.administrator@regents.ox.ac.uk a PDF formatted, scanned copy of written work with the required coversheet. If you are unable to scan and email your work, you can post it to the Admissions Office, Regent’s Park College, Pusey Street, Oxford, OX1 2LB. Please ensure that you use adequate postage; it may also be advisable to use registered post. Please bear in mind that mailed-in written work cannot be returned.

We are unable to accept work that is hosted on file sharing sites, such as Google Drive and Dropbox.

Unable to attend interviews?

All candidates resident in the UK, the European Economic Area (EU and Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and Switzerland are expected to come to Oxford for interview in December if shortlisted. Candidates who are resident outside the EEA and Switzerland should inform the college by the 12th November 2018 whether they will be able or unable to come to Oxford for interview in December if shortlisted.

If you are not able to attend for an interview this will not impact on the consideration of your application. Regent’s Park College will do its best to arrange a Skype interview for you during the admissions interview week. Please see the following web link for more information: www.ox.ac.uk/intarrangements

Shortlisting for Interview

Candidates who are shortlisted for interview will be contacted by email at least one week before their interviews are due to take place. We aim to send out shortlisting decisions sooner than a week before, but this is not always possible. It is also possible that candidates who have applied to different subjects and colleges may hear at a different time to you; do not worry if this is the case, as there can be significant differences between courses and colleges. If you have not received any communication a week before interviews for your course are due to start, please contact the admissions office as soon as possible.

You can find information regarding interview timetables here: http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/applying-to-oxford/guide/interviews

If you think you will be unable to attend the interviews in person, please email academic.administrator@regents.ox.ac.uk by Monday 12th November.

All candidates who are invited to Regent’s for interview will be accommodated on-site and provided with meals free of charge. The accommodation consists of a single bedroom with shared bathroom facilities. For meals you will be provided with breakfast, lunch and dinner during your stay. You will usually be accommodated the night before your interviews begin. Further information on your arrival time will be sent with your shortlisting letters.

UCAS Declaration

Candidates are reminded of the declaration they made on their UCAS application that the information is true, complete and accurate and no information has been omitted.

We cannot accept further unsolicited references that are additional to the reference on your UCAS. Any that are received will not be considered.

If you need to change your contact details you can do this directly through UCAS, but please also let the admissions office know by emailing academic.administrator@regents.ox.ac.uk.

Disability

If you have a disability that you have not already disclosed on your UCAS application, please let us know. Whether you have disclosed your disability on UCAS or not, please let us know if there are any special arrangements or support that would help you, so that we can make any appropriate, reasonable arrangements for you in good time, if you are invited to interview. Mentioning your disability or Specific Learning Difficulty will not affect your application, as admissions decisions are made solely on the grounds of academic merit.  Information provided may be shared with colleagues in the college (and University more widely) who would be involved with making any required arrangements. Please refer to www.ox.ac.uk/swd for further information on sources of support for students with disabilities.
